When one of America's most celebrated playwrights holds a mirror up to modern relationships, are you strong enough to look? This the challenge issued in Donald Margulies' Pulitzer-winning Dinner with Friends, now at Glenview's Oil Lamp Theater. Gabe and Karen, a happily married couple, have been friends for decades with Tom and Beth, also married. Everything changes when Beth reveals that Tom has been unfaithful and their marriage is on the verge of imploding. The story is not the divorce, however, but the shockwave effect it has on Gabe and Karen's relationship. At first they feel forced to pick sides, then they begin to notice the cracks in their own marriage. This "rueful comedy" exposes the insecurities that everyone faces when big changes happen in their lives. The characters are real and relatable: They might be your friends, your family ... they might even be you. Learn More
Venue was great! Free snacks, nice lobby area....the only negative is the seats...they are folding chairs with worn out cushions...caused numb butt, not just for us, but we saw many seated in front of us shifting in their seats frequently trying to get comfortable. I did see someone brought a seat cushion...so they must have had past experience at this venue.Come Blow Your Horn info • Sep 22 2014 star this tip starred

Oil Lamp Theater has wonderful ambiance, including a delightful fragrance throughout. When you enter the lobby we were greeted by Keith, the owner, who points out the "freebies": homemade cookies, deluxe mixed nuts, and pop. Because it is fall, he had warm apple cider made from his own recipe. There are couches and chairs to sit in and sip (BYOB if you wish--he'll open the bottle for you).
The theater itself is cozy (maximum 50 patrons) and has open seating. The cast were each excellent in their very different roles. And the audience was able to share in the celebratory chocolate cake after the show.
Going to Oil Lamp Theater (our third time) is truly an EVENT.
